The growth rate of our privately owned RV rental listings continues to climb and our model is being well received by owners and renters. On top of that, we've only scratched the surface in terms of inventory. There are approximately 10 million RV's registered in North America, and we know that at least 10% want to earn extra income from their idle asset.
